The Ministry in the process of drafting legislation facilitating the collection of debts.
Currently, there are over 2 million enterprises in Poland, and last year about 50 new companies appeared every month. According to Euler Harmes, 889 companies went bankrupt at the same time. It is the largest number of bankruptcies since 2012. In this context, the Government wants to help entrepreneurs fight congestion and plans to amend the legislation.
The Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology publishes a Green Paper on its website proposing solutions to the problem of payment bottlenecks. This is the start of consultations on the problem of the long-term backlog of invoices.
In the “Green Paper”, the Ministry asks entrepreneurs how to effectively limit the extension of contractual deadlines, how to induce contractors to pay on time, whether and what sanctions should be borne by unreliable companies. At the same time, the ministry hopes that businessmen will send their comments on how to solve the problem of bottlenecks. The collected opinions are to be used by the Ministry in the process of drafting legislation facilitating the collection of debts.
